Young people making the best of what they have, their creativity, and us sharing it with the entire world in form of artworks, products, and art prints to raise what they need (school fees) and enable them to attain the quality education they deserve.
Faces Up Store is an initiative by Faces Up Uganda that inclusively empowers young people from underserved communities to take the lead in bettering their own lives. We hope to enable them to keep their education dreams alive by harnessing their creativity to bring them monetary value/raise funds and pay for their education. On every product, artwork or art print sold, 60% of the price paid goes into our school fees program, 20% goes into procuring more art materials to ensure that our beneficiaries continue creating while 20% covers our administrative costs.
The statement designs on the products are inspired by original drawings done by the young artists as well as the artworks. We start by offering free mentorship sessions for young people at our community center located in Masanafu, Bukulugi zone so as to enable them become more creative, confident and compassionate. By purchasing any of these items, you make the following impact;
You directly support the education of the young artists.
You enable youths and girls who sew the products to make an income.
You enable us to continue offering free mentorship within underserved communities.
